- It has been two weeks since Kabza De Small dropped his banging amapiano album I Am the King of Amapiano: Sweet and Dust
- 26 tracks from the 27-track album made the top 30 charts, leaving Apple Music calling Kabza's album the biggest release in SA
- Kabza couldn’t be more grateful for all the support
Kabza De Small dropped his banging amapiano album I Am the King of Amapiano: Sweet and Dust just two weeks ago and it has already taken over Mzansi.
Amapiano has become one of the biggest sounds in South Africa and every artist is trying to get their fingers in this groove pot.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Kabza’s album has been called the album of the year and a history-maker by Apple Music. What this album has accomplished in just two weeks is something to be celebrated.
Karl Anderson, Apple Music’s head of Music Africa, has described Kabza’s album as “the biggest local South African album first day and first week.”
When the album was released, 26 tracks from the 27-track album made the top 30 charts – that is insanity! Not to mention that the album clocked over eight million streams on digital platforms.
Kabaza’s album has broken records, set new ones and done something that has never before been seen in Mzansi music history. What a wow!
My guy, you have done the thing and so much more! Kabza couldn’t be more grateful for all the support. This wouldn’t have been possible without his fans.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that lockdown was causing everything and everyone to slow down, whether they like it or not. One of those who was forced to press the brakes was muso Kabza De Small.
There's a running joke among Mzansi music fans that Kabza De Small doesn't sleep. Black Twitter has relentlessly dragged him for always looking exhausted.
Kabza saw the funny side and decided to poke back at the naysayers. He posted a picture of himself sleeping with the caption:
"Bazothi (They will say) finally he's asleep. Bo njandini (The dogs)."
